Food Drive


Wellington Elementary’s annual food drive to benefit the Woodinville Storehouse Food Bank is underway NOW!!! If you’re able, please send your child with nonperishable items to school. Each classroom has a bin for collection. 


After Thanksgiving break, we will count the items and the class that brings in the most will get to choose how Mr. Schoenfeldt shaves his beard! 


We will be collecting the items in the classrooms on 11/27 from 11:30-1:00.

If you would like to help gather the goods from around campus, and count please sign up here to volunteer.




Dine out at Red Robin


Give your resident chef a break by taking your family to enjoy a meal at Red Robin – or order online and enjoy at home!


On December 1, Wellington Elementary PTA will receive 20% of fundraiser sales throughout the day.


Dine in, order online at redrobin.com, or order through the mobile app.  

All orders must mention the fundraiser for WE PTA to receive the 20% of sale. For online and mobile app orders, you must add the fundraiser to your cart before you check out for the sales to count towards the fundraiser.



Maker Space


We would like to provide students with the option of working on crafts and art projects during recess. To offer this on a regular basis, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We are requesting supplies and volunteers. Please bring your donations to the office where you will find a bin labeled “Art Supplies.”


Items needed: Black construction paper, markers,bracelet stretchy string, puzzle storage/saver roll(s), Duplo blocks, Magnatiles, etc.


We will have a training in the next couple of weeks for “Makers Space”and “Wolverine Wranglers”. 


If you have not signed up but would like to be a part of the training, please email us at president@wellingtonpta.org


Currently, we have two volunteers who have offered to open the space on Tuesdays. We would love to have more!  Our goal is to have a list of volunteers so if someone can’t make it, they can reach out to the list and see if anyone is available. If there are no volunteers available, the Maker Space will not be open for students.


Do you want to be a part of this great program at lunch recess (11:20-1:00)?   


Please sign up to be a “Wolverine Wrangler” and note that you are interested in Maker Space, and we will follow up with you.  


Make sure you include your contact info.




Another Fun Way to Fundraise


From November 17, 2023 through January 15, 2024, if you mention the Wellington PTA at the Bellevue Ice Skating Rink, they will kick back $3 per person!


The ice rink is a temporary structure at the Bellevue Downtown Park (https://bellevueicerink.com/directions) in Downtown Bellevue (south of Bellevue Square), and a production of the Bellevue Downtown Association, a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization.


Just notify rink staff upon arrival that you are with Wellington Elementary. They are not able to track fundraising tally on the e-ticketing ticket reservation platform. A tally is kept of the total number of visits during these dates.


Company Matching


The Wellington PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please check with your employer about company matching with donations and volunteer time!
